$499 is not expensive for a new system in 2013/14.

I'm sorry I don't get the issue with the price. Sure $399 would have been better but I feel its unrealistic with what they give you. You get way more (Kinect, IR blaster, better made OS, like always a better online experience.) with the Xbox one for the price than the ps4. Trust me I know I have both. Lastly it's just not that much money. Sony made their system more money in 2006 with the launch of the PS3. With inflation it's amazing that both companies kept the price under $500. I love both systems. They both serve a purpose especially when it comes to exclusive content. But really people should stop complaining about a price that isn't that much at all.

Also if you look at inflation the 360 released at pretty much the same price with less stuff.

It's still more than the direct competitor which is a $100 cheaper and more powerful to boot.

Who made the rule it has to be the same price. It's offering more hardware. My XBone just feels better made and more expensive.

Hey bozo, we're talking about facts here not your "feelings". And by all accounts the PS4 is much better designed with its smaller size, internal PSU, cooler temperatures and a lower failure rate.

Hey clown your hardware has no software and worse fps and no features and show a link to the lower failure rate....oh wait there is none.

Ps4 is for people too ignorant to get the same games on PC with better resolution and free online.

$499 for what is essentially a children's toy is pretty expensive no matter when it's made.

"My" hardware? Sorry but I don't own a PS4. Regardless neither console has any must-have games at the moment; it's all about the long run and the PS4 is undoubtedly going to come out on top.

The PS4 seems like the PS3 but just with better graphics, so seeing as I already had a PS3 the One was a better buy for me.

Online experience can't be factored into console price considering... you know.. you have to buy a subscription for it. If they gave you a year of Live out of the box then it could be argued into the price tag. The only reason it's 100 more than PS4 is Kinect. The piece of hardware a lot of people could do without, and would have been much happier paying less for a version without it included.
